The big guns at Members Credit Union didn't mind getting their powder wet for a good cause. The $230 million CU held a "Dunk the Boss" fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at Members CU headquarters in Winston-Salem, N.C., and raised $1,292 while having a good time on a summer day. This is the fifth year that Members CU has raised money for JDRF in the Triad, hitting a total so far of $37,000.
Donna Henry, business development director, gladly takes $10 from member services rep Renae Jones so she can ensure her boss gets dunked instead of taking a chance at an errant toss.
Meghan Donley, daughter of EVP Bob Donley, makes a toss at one of Dad's colleagues, auditor Rob Semar. Meghan's aim was true, and down he went.
CEO Jack Braswell sets a good example by following dress code rules even while about to get a good dunking.
Looks like this boss is all wet.
EVP Bob Donley shows school colors while getting ready for his turn in the tank.
Lending director Hazel Pleasants pushes the button to make sure this boss goes kersplash.
And down he goes, sharing some of the wet stuff with the lady who pulled his seat out from under him.
Next up was Chris Uthe, who works at Med 3000, a company located in Members CU's office building. He volunteered to join in the fun, too, but made sure to wear his floaties.
